Three replies to things I saw today on Planet Debian on blogs of people that don’t have fully-working web comment systems:-
- Professional Slide Installer (usual buggy blogger.com CAPTCHA) – yes, they exist. My village’s council sometimes hires them. I think they’re carpenters who have specialised. There are also professional slide inspectors (well, childrens’ play area safety inspectors, but professional slide inspector sounds cooler).
- Internet Speed Hype (usual buggy wordpress kind-a captcha) – ThePhone.Coop (UK) doesn’t cap, but charges extra if you go over your subscription amount. We have a monitoring system that lets you check your usage fairly easily and set up email alerts when your prepaid amount is almost used up. (I work for agent AG_471 of ThePhone.Coop but I think I’d like them anyway.)
- home of the madduck/ blog/ Recovering a lost default route (site under construction – see bottom of page) – I was told by a very wise man to always start a delayed reboot (shutdown -r +5) before messing with anything to do with the networking on a remote machine.
